Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics OEM factory, manufactured and assembled more than 50% iPhone of the world. In 2010, the serial jumping of Foxconn workers caught attention. People holding iPhone suddenly noticed that it’s producer were working like a robot, acting every 7 seconds, 12 hour a day. They felt a bit uneasy, but cannot loosen their hand. Smartphone has changed human life completely. On the other side, the company supplying touch panels to HTC were suppressing worker union. Union and supporting students choose HTC to protest, making its managers feel embarrassed and aggrieved. Meanwhile, one of HTC engineer died possibly because of overworking. His last message on Facebook was “off work, issue still not resolved”, AM 3 o’clock, Sunday. In this era, robotic people making humanized machine, is it a hopeless tragedy, or the beginning of a brave new world?
【導演的話 / Director’s statement】
After serial jumping, Foxcoon chairman, Terry Kuo, declared to build an army of robots to replace assembly workers. Though the plan has not been realized yet , in a way I’m still looking forward to it. It might be more urgent to raise workers’ wage and decrease working time, however the machine-like labor itself is a denial to humanity. We should be ready, too. For the day when robot army marches, we’ll need to adjust the whole social structure and create a new job genre, which is cooperative rather than competitive, creative than reproductive, and live than alienated, to catch workers who lose their jobs.
